I can't begin to tell you how perfect my Long Branch Wedding was! From the first time I stepped on the property I had the best feeling. All my wedding stress went out the door and from that moment on it was a dream working with and planning the wedding of my dreams. Long Branch is a one stop shop meaning when you sign your contract with them you get to chose a photographer, they provide you with a caterer (food and cake), a DJ, flowers and decor, a wedding planner (who is super sweet and amazingly talented), and so much more! All I had to do was give Gretchen (the wedding planner) my ideas on what I envisioned my day to look like and she really took it from there letting me focus and enjoy the best months before my wedding! My big day came and I was blown away with everything. Really above and beyond anything I could've imagined. ..not to mention Long Branch with no decor is a beautiful place. With all its history, horse fields, and rolling mountains as a backdrop it makes for the perfect location. It's been almost 6 months since my perfect day and I'm still awestruck. Do yourself a favor and check this venue out!Sent on 09/19/2017

Getting married at Long Branch was one of the best decisions that my husband and I made. It was the very first venue we looked at and once we saw it, we knew it was the one! The property is absolutely gorgeous and has great views of the mountains which we absolutely love. For us, one of the selling features is that the property is on 400 acres so you will have your privacy. The inside of the mansion is breathtaking as well and full of so much history! We also had the pleasure of working with Gretchen (our wedding planner) from Dragonfly Events and Design when we signed on with Long Branch. She had a ton of wonderful ideas and listened to everything that we had in mind. Not that it needs much, but after everything was said and done, on the day of our wedding Gretchen transformed Long Branch into a sight we will never forget! I cannot recommend Long Branch or Dragonfly Events and Design enough!! Check this place out and you will so happy you did!Sent on 07/18/2018

We got married at Long Branch in September 2017 and we'd highly recommend it. From the elegant country home on the property to the great views of the Blue Ridge Mountains surrounding it, we and all our guests loved it. Being Virginia natives, we wanted something that really represented where we're from and Long Branch fit the bill. Everything went super smoothly and we were extremely happy with how our wedding turned out.Sent on 02/26/2018
